Publisher's Summary

The ultimate secret. The ultimate agent. Nathaniel Cade returns.

For 140 years, Nathaniel Cade has been the President's Vampire, sworn to protect and serve his country. Cade's existence is the most closely guarded of White House secrets: a superhuman covert agent who is the last line of defense against nightmare scenarios that ordinary citizens only dream of. When a new outbreak of an ancient evil-one that he has seen before- comes to light, Cade and his human handler, Zach Barrows, must track down its source. To "protect and serve" often means settling old scores and confronting new betrayals . . . as only a centuries-old predator can.

    "Excellent series - keep reading"

    I don't imagine you're reading this unless you've read the first installment of the series, 'Blood Oath'. If I'm being honest, this second book in the series is a shade less potent than the first installment. Still pretty darn good though - I definitely recommend reading / listening. I'm maintaining the five star rating because, at the time I'm writing this, I've read the third book, which was awesome. Overall, this series holds five stars. If you're a fan of 'Blood Oath' but think this is a weaker tea, keep drinking, you'll be happy you did.

    I love to read, but I am time-limited. Audible allows me to keep up with all my favorite authors while on the hiking trail. Thanks, Audible!

    "Moxie and mad skills!"

    Nathaniel Cade, the ultimate defender of the world, is back with his plucky but sexually deprived handler, Zach. In The President???s Vampire, Cade uses his super strength and senses to protect people of the world against an old but newly, genetically altered foe. In this installment, we learn more about Cade???s skills, and Zach displays toughness in the face of adversity. I had no idea he was capable of such moxie. Finally, Tanya is still present, and her presence is still inexplicable. This book is interesting but is not as good as Blood Oath. Bronson Pinchot, again, does a wonderful job bringing characters to life.

    "Loved it!"

    This is a vampire series (3 books). You don???t have a doe-eyed female saying bite my neck or a Clan of vampires trying to integrate into society or take over the vamp world. What you do have is a reluctant vampire; he made one mistake and has to attone for it for the rest of eternality
    Cane is bounded by a pledged but also believes in fighting for the values of Unites States of America. Cane goes out (with his sidekick Zach) to fight the monsters so you and I can sleep monster free. As a matter of fact, he is sooo good we don???t even know there are monsters. So we have got espionage, vamps, politics, the values of ???Red, White and Blue??? (our flag) and a vampire who does not understand 21st century colloquialisms.

    "What's not to like?"

    This is a great series. Like-able characters, good premise. Imagine HellBoy with a vampire instead of a devil, and you've got the idea of this book. Well narrated.

    "My first review, that good. Start with Blood Oath."
    What did you love best about The President's Vampire?

    The story is awesome. I stayed up all night listening to this nonstop. Great take on an old subject.


    What does Bronson Pinchot bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    Bronson is my new favorite narrator, sorry Marc Vietor. Bronson bring a large group of voices and makes each character come to life. I was equally impressed with the narrator as I was with the story.


    Any additional comments?

    Start with Blood Oath!

    "Like "Blood Oath"? You'll like this one, too."

    Cade and Zach are back with more adventure and carnage. Zach has accepted his position with resignation and some humor, while Cade is trying to be patient with Zach's inexperience. The two are developing a rapport that is kinda cute in a way. I hope Christopher Farnsworth is able to come out with another Cade & Zach book soon.

    "Farnsworth & Pinchot--a match made in ... heaven?"

    Excellent political thriller, love that Cade. And Bronson Pinchot... who knew? I'm adding him to my short list of most-listenable readers. Amazing!

    "Good idea... shallow characters and plot..."

    It was ironic that I started reading this the day it was reported that Bin Laden was killed. The idea is interesting and the main character had some depth to him that I feel was unexplored. Most of the other characters in the entire book were too shallow and i will forget their names quickly. There was no emotional connection to them. I also feel like the book had potential but was hard to follow because the author tries to put too many historical ties in it and the plot becomes too segmented to follow as a casual listener. I got the main idea and was able to enjoy most of it, but it could have been better. Pinchot does a good job at narrating. I might recommend to someone interested in monsterology.
